How does Botulinum toxin injection wrinkle relaxing treatment work?
Wrinkle relaxing treatment blocks impulses from the nerve to the facial muscles that are related to expression lines. This relaxes, or puts the muscle into “hibernation” for around 3 to 4 months leaving the overlying skin looking smooth and less wrinkled.
Botulinum toxin wrinkle relaxing treatment works only on the specific muscles injected leaving surrounding muscles to function as usual.

During the course you will learn the techniques to treat Hyperhidrosis. This is a fantastic treatment for excessive underarm sweating. It is estimated to affect approximately 1% of the population. Although most people associate excessive sweating with the underarm area – it can occur in other focal parts of the body, such as the hands, or feet, or it can be more generalized affecting the whole of the body.
There can be a positive family history of this disease, but the underlying cause of Hyperhidrosis is not yet fully understood.
Although there are no known long term complications associated with excessive sweating, people who suffer from this embarrassing condition can find that it dramatically affects their confidence in social or work situations resulting in a reduction in their quality of their life. Normal antiperspirants and deodorants are generally ineffective in providing adequate relief from the symptoms of excessive sweating.
Generalized excessive sweating over large areas of the body are usually treated by General Practitioners or Dermatologists with systemic antimuscarinic drugs. These help to reduce sweating over the whole of the body, but can also be associated with systemic side effects. Treatment options relating to Focal Hyperhidrosis affecting discreet areas of the body, such as the axilla (armpits), feet and hands aim to target reduction of sweating in the area affected.
Botulinum toxin was approved in the United Kingdom as a medical treatment for under arm sweating in July 2001.
Tiny amounts of botuulinum toxin are injected under the arm. The protein works by reducing the effect of local nerves stimulating the sweat glands. This results in the production of less sweat.
